NEWT DEFENDS PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION

In Newt Gingrich on December 1, 2011 by Iowans for Christian Leaders in Government

Christian conservatives split on Gingrich’s right-to-life record

Des Moines Register; Jennifer Jacobs; 11/28/2011

The question of whether Newt Gingrich is sufficiently hard-line on right-to-life issues is splitting Iowa Christian conservatives at a time when many of them are giving his resurgent presidential campaign a serious look.

A prominent evangelical pastor, alarmed by what he sees as a stream of Iowa Republicans leaning toward Gingrich, questions whether they realize Gingrich has in the past spoken in favor of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research and abortions in certain cases.

But Gingrich has switched his position on federal funding. He now thinks the government should not ask taxpayers to pay for any abortions, Hammond said.

A significant bloc of Iowa evangelical Christians opposes abortion under any circumstances — and even more lambaste federal funding in any instance.

“Newt is famous for being all over the board,” said Cary Gordon, a minister at Sioux City’s Cornerstone church. “He is admirable in many ways, but I won’t back him. I don’t trust him.” Read More »

AN OPEN LETTER TO BOB VANDER PLAATS

In Newt Gingrich on November 28, 2011 by Iowans for Christian Leaders in Government

Dear Mr. Vander Plaats:

We are aware that you are preparing to endorse a candidate for President of the United States in the coming weeks.  This will undoubtedly be an important decision considering you have the ear of many Christians throughout our state of Iowa.  Our group believes that we must select leaders who not only espouse our values, but who live them each and every day.

With that being said, we have serious concerns that your endorsement may be guided, not by prayer and conviction, but by personal benefit and prior relationships.  Of which, would seem to lead you toward Newt Gingrich and, needless to say, he is not an acceptable choice among Christians.

These concerns of an imminent Newt Gingrich endorsement stem from the following:

1. Your prior connection to Mr. Gingrich via Congressman Jim Nussle.

2. Your ill-advised track record as it pertains to supporting candidates that lack common moral fiber.

3. Your acceptance of $200,000 which Mr. Gingrich secured for your organizations. Read More »

THERE IS ONLY ONE CANDIDATE WHO…

In Newt Gingrich on November 28, 2011 by Iowans for Christian Leaders in Government

THERE IS ONLY ONE CANDIDATE WHO… 

…cheated on his 1st wife.

…then delivered divorce papers to her while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer.

…and later cheated on his 2nd wife.

…while he was leading the investigation against Clinton’s Lewinsky scandal.

AND THIS SAME CANDIDATE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO…

…supports federal funding for abortions.

…and fought the Republican Party’s effort to deny funds to candidates who support partial birth abortion.

…and said, “I hope the President will find a way to agree that there ought to be federally funded embryonic stem cell research.”

NEWT GINGRICH.

“Newt is the last person I’d vote for for President of the United States. His life indicates he does not have acommitment to the character traits necessary to be a great President.”

-REPUBLICAN Senator Tom Coburn
